Moto Z3 Release Date, Price and Specs

Following the launch of the Moto G6, Motorola has more new devices and this time flagship. The Moto Z3 smartphone was announced on 2 August in Chicago and is the first 5G smartphone.

Where other companies have failed, Motorola has been sticking with a modular phone with the Z range. The Moto Mods mean you can quickly snap on additions like a speaker, additional battery or even a projector. This time it will make the phone 5G compatible.

When is the Moto Z3 release date?
The Moto Z3, for now at least, is only available in the US and it has a release date of 16 August.

How much does the Moto Z3 cost?
In the US, mobile network Verizon has an exclusive on the Z3 and you can pick it up for just $480, a subsidised price. The alternative is $20 a month for 24 months.

If it comes to the UK, without any offers, we'd expect the Moto Z3 to be priced at around £700.
What are the Moto Z3 specs?
Although it's similar to previous Z phones, the big news here is that the Z3 is the first phone to support 5G - that's the new mobile network standard that's coming next year bringing speeds of up to 5Gbps.

It can't do it alone, though, as the functionality will be added with one of the Moto Mods. The firm, along with Verizon, will launch the 5G Mod (below) in early 2019 which has Qualcomm's X50 modem inside. It also has the 7nm X24 for faster LTE speeds.

When connected to the Z3, it will take over from the slower X16 modem when there's enough 5G signal. Beware that it will only work on Verizon in Houston, Sacramento, Los Angeles and one other yet to be announced city.

Back to the main specs of the phone itself, and the Moto Z3 is fairly similar to the Moto Z3 Play that Motorola already announced a short while ago.

It has the same chassis and 6in Full HD+ screen but a number of upgrades including a higher-tier Qualcomm processor and 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage as standard.

It's also has dual rear cameras. Both are 12Mp (one monochrome) and as well as depth effect features, the phone can record 4K video at 30fps.

Further features and specs include a water repellent coating, side-mounted fingerprint scanner and Motorola's handy software features that come with Android 8.1 Oreo including Voice, Actions and Display.

Vorwerk Kobold VR300 Review

At nearly £1000, does the VR300 offer enough to justify the purchase when you can pick up a robot vac for £100s less? Find out in our Vorwerk Kobold VR300 review
Should I Buy The Vorwerk Kobold VR300?
It’s expensive, but the Kobold VR300 provides an impressive vacuuming experience that we think could rival that of a conventional vacuum cleaner, but it’s not as smart as some rivals – yet. The low-profile design, upgraded SLAM technology and D-shape design allow the VR300 to safely navigate around obstacles and reach every last nook and cranny.

Asus ZenBook 14 (UX433) Review

Asus has revamped the ZenBook line with a whole new design, including a lighter build, redesigned hinge, and a light-up numpad built right into the touch pad
Should I Buy The Asus ZenBook 14 UX433?
The ZenBook 14 is a very promising shakeup to the Asus laptop line. It’s smaller, lighter, and better looking than any of the previous models, without having to sacrifice either ports or powers. There aren't many laptops around that can offer you a 14in display in a body this compact while still giving you USB-A and HDMI ports, not to mention a Core i7 processor.
Unless you're an Excel addict you can probably safely ignore the glowing numpad - it's a fun gimmick, but most of us will probably forget it's even there, and without tactile feedback it's hardly a proper replacement for the keys. Still, this is a strong enough laptop elsewhere that it doesn't need that gimmick to get by, and there's plenty to recommend it otherwise.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Movie Review

Nth Time's a Charm

If you groaned at the thought of another "Spider-Man" movie, fear not because you weren't alone. How many times can one character be rebooted or reimagined before it becomes insufferable? Apparently we aren't there yet, because "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" is a welcome breath of fresh air.
Everyone's history with the movies about our favorite neighborhood webslinger differs. Sam Raimi's trilogy has its diehard fans (despite only producing one truly great film) and the Andrew Garfield-led "The Amazing Spider-Man" movies were cut short when they didn't meet expectations (the first one is good!). Last year, Jon Watts' "Spider-Man: Homecoming" found Tom Holland in the title role, providing a fun, well-rounded look at the character, which had been missing for a while.
